I don’t own a gaming console of any kind, but I’m digging the trailer for this game, done in the style of 1930’s cartoons.

From the source: Studio MDHR, which developed the game, is aiming to launch later this year on Steam and Xbox One. It’s a great catch for Microsoft, which is trying to build a catalogue of unique and interesting games beyond the Call of Duty and Halo fare. The studio also hopes to release the game on the Sega Master System. Yes, the console that was released back in 1986. It would be the complete package, with a box, cartridge, and game manual.

The game follows the same style of early animation. Studio MDHR is taking the time to use actual cells and is inking by hand to create that classic effect. The music for the game is also live recorded Jazz, none of that MIDI stuff.

Any gamers out there? Would you want to play this?

Dr. Dreadful’s Creep Show

I’ve posted about Megan Petasky before. This video of hers is guaranteed to be one of the creepiest cartoons you see today (assuming you watch a lot. You watch a lot, right?).

Heal Yourself Skeletor

Heal Yourself Skeletor is an amazing tumblr. I cannot tell you how much joy I get from looking at this particular character paired with joyous, loving affirmations.

Skeletor makes a dynamite bodhisattva (and the screenshots are perfect, aren’t they?).

Adam Dougherty: Witch Hazel

I loved the Looney Tunes episodes that featured Witch Hazel. Adam Dougherty (aka Kreature Kid) made this incredible life size model of the screechy sorceress.

Amazing, no?

Creepmas Day 8: Salad Fingers 10th Birthday

Posted in absurd, animation, video with tags , , on December 8, 2013 by shewalkssoftly

If you’re sick of sweet holiday cartoons (and heartwarming movies about Christmas dogs…what’s with all those?), check out the Salad Fingers 10th anniversary episode!

I even made a Hubert Cumberdale sock puppet a while back to commemorate a beloved character.

The end features the creepiest gift of all time.

This rather horrifying chunk of stop motion surrealism was hidden in the recesses of my mind until my wonderful friend Casey reminded me of it (thanks, Casey!)…
